Thursday Thirteen 94: Creative Ways to Say I Love You


In honor of Valentine's Day, Thirteen creative ways to say, "I love you."...


1. Write a romantic love letter to mail and decorate with stickers or stamps.
2. Write it on a driveway or sidewalk using chalks.
3. Write it with icing on a heart shaped cake or cookie.
4. Say it in Post-it-notes hidden around the house.
5. Create a keepsake bookmark to tuck in a new book by their favorite author.
6. Engrave it on a locket or inside a ring.
7. Paint words of love on a stone to use as a paper weight, or to decorate a planter or garden path.
8. Write a note to tuck inside someone’s lunch or pocket.
9. Create a journal or scrapbook to record a message, special memories, photos and memorabilia.
10. Write it on a beach in the sand with a stick, or spell it out in small rocks.
11. Stamp, stitch or paint it on a special keepsake like a pillow or quilt.
12. Write your own love song or poem.
13. Write a message with 'glow in the dark' pens or paints. Little kids would love this glowing reminder of love above their bed.

If you paint a shape like a heart on a wall in the same color paint as the wall, then the shape will only show up under the right lighting - such as a certain time of day or when a particular light is turned on. It's a way to say I Love You all year long. We did that when we painted my son's room.

Shelley Munro said...

Mel said...

I especially like the sticky notes one. I also like the idea of the paint shaped heart on the wall by Alice.

R.J. said...

That is a cool list. I really liked it. Happy T13!

Heather said...

Mel - The nice thing about the sticky notes idea is that it's sweet and simple, and can be done anytime, anywhere.

RJ - Thank you!

Janice said...

I did something to eight but I cut out heart shapes and stuck them in hubby's pant pockets. The problem was when I hung the pants up all the hearts fell out.

Happy TT, and happy V-day.

Janice~

Heather said...

Janice - Aww...it's the thought that counts, right?
